Jose Mourinho Responds To Jurgen Klopp's Manager Of The Year Award

Jose Mourinho Responds To Jurgen Klopp's Manager Of The Year Award

Jose Mourinho isn't impressed with the decision to name Jurgen Klopp as the Manager of the Year, at the FIFA's The Best awards, and feels Hansi Flick should have won the award.

On Thursday Robert Lewandowski was named as The Best FIFA Men's Player, beating Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to the award.

Whilst that decision was accepted by everyone, Liverpool manager Klopp picking up the managerial equivalent didn't go down as well.

Despite managing the Reds to an impressive first Premier League title win, by a mammoth 18 points, many felt that Flick's achievements with Bayern Munich, winning a treble in his first season, outweighed Klopp's work for the year.

Clearly that's a sentiment that Mourinho agrees with. "I think the only chance for Flick to win is if Bayern find two or three new competitions for him to win," the Spurs boss said.

"So maybe if he wins seven titles in one season, maybe he wins the award.

"I believe he only won Champions League, the Bundesliga, German Cup, European Super Cup and German Super Cup.

"He only won five, including the biggest one of all.

"Poor Flick. I think the only chance is for Bayern to find two or three more trophies to see if he can win it."

Mourinho's thoughts come just days after he and the Liverpool boss had a run in on the side of the pitch after their two sides faced each other.

Sir Alex Ferguson Sends Brilliant Message To Jurgen Klopp For Winning Manager Of The Year

published at6 months ago

The Premier League champions picked up all three points against their rivals thanks to a late winner from Roberto Firmino's header but the Londoners might have won themselves after good chances from Lucas Moura and Harry Kane earlier in the game.

At the end of the game the two men had words as they shook hands and afterwards the former Real Madrid boss said he'd told the opposition boss that the best team had loss.

Klopp did at least agree with Mourinho when it came to his winning the FIFA award, saying, "'I don't know why people voted for me. Flick deserved it for his titles," as he accepted the award.

As long as Spurs are in the title race then this rivalry will only get spicier this season.
